Humble Pie and a Massive Mug of Cocoa

5 08 2012

Yesterday I posted on how South Africa seemed to have found a killer instinct needed to transform them from a good team to a world-beating one. It is with disappointment that I have to retract my statement of incredible naivety. The killer instinct I claimed us to have has proven to be a mirage of depressing proportions.

The Proteas were seated in firm control of the Second Test but it was, in fact, a South African that disseated them from their position of power. SA were dealt a lesson in quality batting from Kevin Pietersen (sorry, I couldn’t resist the SA reference) and it might well have done the effervescently glowing African powerhouse a world of good to be brought back to earth.

The result of this intriguing match seems headed towards the ‘draw’ category and it is such a shame that the opportunity for one team to take the match by the scruff of the neck is fading away.

In other news, New Zealand seem likely to be beaten by West Indies in what will be a massive disappointment for the former. I picked up this gem whilst surfing through cricket forums:

My suggestion to the South African team to defeat India in upcoming series is you have to improve your bowling to tie the Indian Batsman because it is difficult to get out any Indian Batsman and you have play carefully Paceman Zaheer Khan.

But I would say that South Africa lags killer instinct inspite of having great players in their team.
